I 134 - Bogota - what financial info necessary?

I have been told by a few people on VJ that if you are 125% of poverty level or more, all you need is the I 134 form along with:

Letter from Employer(s) stating when you started and how much you make.

A Few recent Pay Stubs

Copies of a year or two of Tax records

I was told you only need to provide more evidence if you are under the 125% of poverty, which would not apply to me.

But in the Instructions for the I 134 it says you need a letter from your bank too. Is this necessary for me to get?

Also I was curious if I need to fill out all the financial details on the I 134...like how much value I have in personal items, and how much is in my savings account right now, etc.

If you meet the income requirement with income from a salary alone, you do not need to fill out the asset portion. You only need to supply supporting documentation for your income. ie, pay check stubs showing your current income and three years of tax returns or transcripts.

I'm getting close to being finished with everything...just wanted to get a little more feedback on the financial stuff.

I work 2 jobs..and for 3+ years i've been over the 20k level that they consider to be 125% of poverty.

In my packet so far I have the I-134 filled out. Transcript Income Tax Return receipts from the IRS for 2009, 2010, 2011. I have included my 2011 1040EZ tax document. I also have included two recent paycheck stubs from both jobs (hourly wage is shown on each). I've also written a letter to be attached to the I-134 because I wanted to tell them that in March I received a significant pay increase of over $2.50 per hour. I also wanted to tell them that I receive medical and dental benefits and my fiancee will be on the plan as soon as we're married.

I've been reading and studying the forums and it seems that a lot of people say if you meet the income requirements and provide accurate tax info, you do not need to bother with getting letters from your employer(s) and you don't need the letter from your bank.

Is this accurate, or should I get these letters just to be safe?

You have supplied everything that is required. The letter and bank statements are optional. If you included banking assets, you will need to get the letter from your bank, if you didn't, don't sweat it. You've gone above and beyond what's needed already.

I have the I-134 filled out but I haven't printed it yet. All I filled on the finance section was my salary from last year, approximate amount in my savings account, and approximate dollar value of my possessions (car, TVs, antique sports stuff, coins). Should I even have my savings and possesions on there? I don't really want to list it if that means I need to get a bank letter for my savings. I just figure why go to the trouble if it makes no difference to them.
